Jack in the Pulpit gets its name from the spadix which looks like a preach-
er in a pulpit (the spathe). It blooms in the spring in the Josephine Hatcher Woodland Garden. An unique feature of jack in the pulpit is that they will change from males to females or females to male in order to increase chances of reproduction. When the flower dies back, the berries grow and will turn red later in the summer. Click here to
